I started playing Naughty Dog‘s Jak and Daxter yesterday, and I’ve become quite obsessed. I played so much tonight that my head hurts, my back aches, and my arms are tingling. What a great game. It can be frustrating when you have to try a certain task over and over again, but the fun factor usually overshadows any frustration. The graphics and animation are fantastic, and as Rahul pointed out, it’s really neat that all of the levels are connected in one seamless world. As a bonus, in the developer’s own words, the camera doesn’t make you sick! I highly recommend the game to all you PS2ers out there, especially since it’s a PS2 Greatest Hits title, so it’s only $20.
In other news, my EE282 midterm wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I don’t know my score yet, but I at least answered all of the questions, which is better than I’ve done on a lot of other tests. Partial credit is my friend.
Every Sunday, Mariel and I go to the Menlo Park Farmer’s Market where be buy, among other things, flowers. We bought some nice big Gerber Daisies last week, so I decided to try my hand at photographing one. I blurred out the background in Photoshop because I thought it was distracting to see the texture of the wall around the flower. I think it came out decently, but I’m beginning to feel like 2.1 Megapixels isn’t quite enough.
I wonder if kids will come Trick-or-Treating to Rains?
I should probably stop writing entries at 4:30 a.m. This one is even more imcomprehensible than my usual ones. Ah well, I chock it up to the numbness in my wrists.
